The history behind this monument makes interesting reading. Great viewpoint too. Good place to stop and seal/dolphin watch (if you're lucky). The day I was there did manage to see 1 seal!

This is a simple stone monument with a couple of signs giving a clear explanation of what its about, its the setting of Chanonry Point that is the attraction, and worth it, see separate review!

More than the monument and the story behind it, what we loved was the splendid looking lighthouse nearby and the view. Unbelievable sunshine for a Dec day.
